Now is the time to buy a new heat pump hot water heater in Westchester

Concerned that your water heater may be on its last legs? Don’t wait to find yourself with no hot water, or worse, a leak that floods your basement. Replacing it proactively prevents an emergency and also saves you money. When you invest in a new heat pump hot water heater, the latest energy-efficient technology, right now you can take advantage of incentives like rebates and tax credits. 

If your home is in Westchester, ConEd is offering a rebate of $1000 on a new heat pump water heater. That’s on top of saving up to $350 annually on your utility bills with a more efficient appliance. 

Plus, you can take advantage of a federal program to claim 30% of the project cost (up to $2,000) as a federal tax credit when you install an ENERGY STAR approved heat pump hot water heater in your principal residence.

Is it time to replace your water heater? Here’s how to tell.

When to replace your water heater

Is your water heater about to fail? If you have noticed one or more of these signs, it’s time to consider a replacement:

  1. The obvious: you have no hot water!
  2. Water is leaking from the tank
  3. Hot water runs out quickly
  4. Water with a metallic smell or taste
  5. Discolored water 
  6. Strange noises coming from the water heater
  7. Water heater is more than ten years old

Here’s why a new heat pump hot water heater is the smart choice.

Why a heat pump water heater beats traditional gas or electric

A heat pump hot water heater (also known as hybrid water heater or hybrid electric heat pump) basically works like a refrigerator in reverse. It pulls heat from the air and uses it to heat the water in your water heater. This process is 2 to 3 times more efficient than generating heat with electricity or gas. 

That is why a heat pump water heater costs so much less to operate. According to ConEd, a family of 4 can expect to save about $350 a year on energy bills, and thousands over the life span of the appliance.

Plus, you can feel good about doing your part to help protect the planet by using less energy. 

Heat pump water heater brands we recommend

As experienced installers of heat pump hot water heaters, these brands are our top picks:

  1. AO. Smith is known as one of the world’s leading providers of water heating and water treatment solutions. Check out their ProLine® XE Voltex® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters here.
  2. Bradford White produces Built to be the Best® products using high-quality materials, outstanding workmanship, and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. Check out their AeroTherm® Series Water Heaters here.

Both brands offer conventional water heaters with storage tanks as well as demand-type or tankless heat pump water heaters

Tankless models offer the greatest energy savings if your family uses less than 42 gallons of hot water daily. If you often need larger quantities of hot water simultaneously (for showers, laundry, and running the dishwasher, for example), you might be better off with a conventional model. 

A few requirements 

Will a heat pump hot water heater work in your home? Here are some requirements:

Space. You need at least 1,000 cubic feet of air space around the water heater

Temperature. The area where the water heater is installed must stay between 40º–90ºF year round. A warmer space helps the system operate more efficiently.

Drainage. A nearby drain is required for periodic maintenance (flushing sediment from the system).

Electricity. A heat pump water heater does require electricity to operate, so your electrical panel must be able to accommodate the unit’s requirements.

Because every installation is different, it’s important to have your site inspected by a comfort advisor. Bruni & Campisi experts can answer any questions and create the ideal installation plan for your needs.
